An Airbrushed Card I Enjoy

In my first pack of 2011 Topps Opening Day, I found a blue bordered Stephen Strasburg and in my second pack I find this Lance Berkman as a Cardinal card that I didn't know existed. It is certainly one of the better quality airbrush jobs. You would actually think he had played a game as a Cardinal already.

#69 Lance Berkman


And here's the rest o the pack:


#156 Ryan Zimmerman


#145 Ubaldo Jimenez


#138 Chris Young


PP-4 Ronald Reagan Presidential First Pitch Insert


#49 Yonder Alonso


#72 Ricky Romero

I want to trade for that Reagan card! I will beg if necessary.

Rats...cubsfan731 beat me to the punch. That is a great looking card!

Not only is it a great-looking card, but Ronnie is my hero. Definitely a card that would be the cornerstone of my collection.

LOL, everyone wants to comment on the Reagan! Love the card...I'm going to have to grab a few packs of this product soon. I didn't even know it was already out!

I do wish they would use different photos of the players than what is in the base set. Other than that, it looks great.

A new opening day logo! Also, sometimes they do use different pictures than the base cards. Looks like I've got to go trolling for a Tigers base set in the next couple days.

Is it sad that I prefer the way they do opening day to base Topps? I love the no-foil.

that looks so wrong for many reasons
